Where I live: cork, Co Cork Member since: March 2008 Last here: 2609 days ago
About my garden: The history of the garden, going back about 15 to 20 years ago was that it used to be an alpine rockery show garden. But there was little of that left by the time I got here, except for all the rocks! Having dug up wheelbarrows full of stones just to create a small flower bed I now understand why it was a rockery! But I'm not that fond of rockeries so I've persevered with my excavating and tons of compost to have my flower garden.
More about me: I'm an artist who started gardening about two years ago. So I've lots to learn. Flowers are my main interest as they are a great source of inspiration for my paintings. But eventually I hope to have a kitchen garden too. You're more than welcome to visit my own blog where I post stuff I've done and stuff that catches my attention on the net. http://www.janies-rainy-day.blogspot.com/ It's a bit of a mouth full I know but I hadn't a clue when I was starting out!
